LINKEDIN has unveiled plans to keep sending you wheedling, passive-aggressive emails you never asked for.
The company has confirmed that it has built a special computer with your name and photo on it that will send you two emails a day forever.
A spokesman said: “Remember, you were invited to join the network by a workmate of your cousin’s boyfriend you met at a wedding. That’s legally binding.”
But Joanna Kramer, a dental technician, said: “At first I ignored them, then marked them as spam, then tried to unsubscribe only to discover I had signed up for something called ‘LinkedIn Premium’.
“The birthday messages are particularly troubling. I’m half expecting them to send a photo of me in the shower.”
Martin Bishop, a design engineer, added: “I have nightmares where I’m chased through a post-apocalyptic landscape by a huge LinkedIn logo with massive fangs and long hairy legs.
“Whenever it gets within a few yards I hear it shouting that I should read this article about nine emerging markets in the South Asian energy sector.”
The LinkedIn spokesman said: “If Martin is still sure LinkedIn is not for him, we’ll send him Stage One of the Preliminary Introduction to the Unsubscription Assessment.”
